Exam: Ultrasound

Ultrasound Description

Ultrasound examinations are used to help physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions. Ultrasound procedures use high frequency sound waves to generate images of the body part being examined. Ultrasound is used most often to image soft tissue structures such as abdominal organs, soft tissue masses, vascular structures (veins and arteries) and extremities.

Ultrasound procedures require an appointment and some exams require preparation.

Patients may be asked to change into a gown. The technologist will escort you to the examining room and most times you will be asked to lie down on a table.

The ultrasonographer will use a small probe to scan the area requested by your doctor and multiple images will be recorded.
